ASSociated Press: Pakistanis Protest Bush Visit, Cartoons

Anti-U.S. protests erupted in several Pakistani cities Friday, with crowds burning American flags, chanting “Death to Bush!” and scuffling with police shortly before the U.S. president was to arrive for a two-day visit.

Other Pakistanis demonstrated against cartoons of Prophet Muhammad as radical Islamic groups called a strike that shut shops and businesses some towns.

The government promised ironclad security for Bush’s visit, with one official saying hundreds of army commandos and paramilitary troops would be patrolling the capital.

“We have made foolproof arrangements for the safe stay of President Bush and we do not think there will be any problem,” said Brig. Javed Iqbal Cheema, a senior Interior Ministry official who also coordinates with U.S. authorities on counterterrorism issues.

Police in the southern city of Karachi used tear gas and clubs to stop about 1,000 people from marching on the U.S. Consulate, witnesses said.

The stone-throwing crowd came within 200 yards of the building, which was the target of a suicide bomb attack Thursday that killed an American diplomat and three others. The protesters burned U.S. flags and chanted, “Pakistani nation wants head of Bush!”

Oh wonderful!

The Taliban and Al Qaeda sympathizers can protest 2 for 1. But, the Musharraf government has promised security and the end to the violence.

In other areas of Pakistan the Mullah’s and their student groups were out in full force.

In Rawalpindi, some Pakistanis chanted “Killer go back” and “Death to America” during the 30-minute protest. One demonstrator had a bloody forehead, and police stuffed at least five others into a van, an Associated Press photographer on the scene said.

The demonstrators were supporters of the Imamia Students Organization, a Shiite Muslim group. Some trampled on the U.S. flag, while others carried Bush portraits with his face crossed out in red.

In Chaman, a southwestern town on the Afghan border, between 4,000 and 5,000 people protested peacefully. They shouted, “Go back Bush! Bush, dog!” and “God is great!”

A similar rally by about 3,000 people took place in the northwestern city of Peshawar.

About 300 university students rallied in Islamabad, burning an effigy of Bush. Some carried signs that said, “Go back, go back big Satan Bush.”

And do you see any Americans protesting Pakistanis in the United States? or burning their Mosques, religious shrines? Or burning down their businesses?

NOPE……..and now we know why President Musharraf has aligned his goverment with the GREAT SATAN AMERICA – it is called LIBERTY.

Pakistani protestors carry placards reading, ‘Ready to sacrifice on your Dignity,’ during a rally to condemn the publication of cartoons depicting the Islamic Prophet Muhammad printed by some Western newspapers, Friday, March 3, 2006 in Lahore, Pakistan. Security was tightened across Pakistan on during a strike called by radical Islamic groups to protest Prophet Muhammad drawings, with most shops and businesses closed in several cities, officials said.
